Bioheat® Fuel's Environmental Benefits

Rhode Islanders can feel good knowing that they’re making a positive impact on the environment for years to come by choosing oil heat. Today, Rhode Island proudly delivers a 5% blend of Bioheat® to all heating oil consumers in the state. Bioheat is a sustainable, renewable energy source made domestically in the United States. It burns cleaner, more efficiently, and with less of a footprint than traditional home heating oil that was used generations ago.

Bioheat® Fuel: The Bio-Friendly Heating Oil

Bioheat® fuel is a revolutionary heating oil that’s only getting better with time. It’s a blend of traditional heating oil with renewable biodiesel. You can feel great when using Bioheat® fuel, because it is great for the environment. Your Bioheat® fuel delivery is…

  • Renewable and Sustainable
    Biodiesel that is blended with heating oil to create Bioheat® fuel is made of renewable and sustainable resources, like recycled plant oil, animal fats, or recycled grease from restaurants. This would otherwise be discarded as waste, which makes biodiesel renewable in more ways than one.
  • Better for Our Environment
    Bioheat is a cleaner-burning fuel that is low in sulfur, producing near-zero emissions when it burns. Biodiesel has been shown to reduce GHG emissions up to 80% compared to petroleum diesel.

Heating consumers in our state really have one choice when it comes to renewable heating fuel: Rhode Island-made Bioheat® fuel. The biodiesel used to blend with traditional heating oil is produced right here, close to home in Newport, RI at Newport Biodiesel. It is one of the cleanest burning energy sources available, so you should feel good about heating your home this winter!
